Mia St. John has lost not one but two loved ones who both succumbed to mental illness
Mia has learned to deal with the pain of losing first her son Julian to suicide in 2014, and then, she lost Kristoff in 2019.
“I’ve died twice in my life already. The day my son passed and the day #superbowlsunday last year when his father passed."
Mia shared a snap of a portrait of Kristoff with the caption "BLESSED" surrounded by roses and candles. She went on to explain that the photo was taken was at the vigil Paris held at her house in honor of her father.
Mia shared a gallery of photos of the beloved YATR actor, including one of his gravestone, with the inscription "I Stay Lookin' Up." Kristoff shares his resting place with his beloved son, Julian.
Mia and Kristoff might have been divorced for 24 years when he died, but the love and respect between them endured.
On what would have been Kristoff's birthday on July 15, 2019, Mia honored her deceased ex-husband, writing:
“Happy birthday to the funniest, most talented man I ever knew, my ex-husband, father to our two beautiful children and most of all, my friend @kristoffstjohn,” she gushed alongside a collage of pics of the Charlie & Co. alum. “Till we meet again.”
Mia St. John has lost not one but two loved ones who both succumbed to mental illness. Her son, Julian St. John, committed suicide at the age of 25 in 2014 after a long struggle with depression.
Five years later, her ex-husband - and Julian's father - Kristoff St. John passed away from hypertrophic heart failure, caused by excessive consumption of alcohol which he used to self-medicate for his chronic depression.
Mia guested on the "The Doctors" to call attention to the very real pain mental health issues causes and to advocate for improvement in the treatment meted out to sufferers.
